Used to buy, but the last 2 I have bought have both failed. One after 3 Weeks (CRC bad sectors) and the other one just died. Having problems returning them as they say I have to pay for courier and costs!! thought they were under warranty but it appears not??

buyer beware

I think their prices have always been around this range. +-5
Devices are reliable i must say. WD have never let me know but so have others like Seagate and etc. These days its going towards SSD which are a bit expensive but better than these.

Does anyone know if this will work on a Humax box for recording programs, to boost recording space.
Pretty much new prices, WD clearly twigged how easy it is to mug their customers over with secondhand, errr "recertified" drives now.

appears not from a quick google
Weird how metal ones seem more appealing somehow...hard to justify when a new 2tb is £63 on Amazon...hmmm....

heat added for the metal cases

metal dissipates heat way better than plastic. heat is a hard drives enemy.
metal caddies cost a lot more than cheap plastic.
thankyou for your input!

It should do if the box can accept an external drive via USB. If it can't what you have to do is dismantle the drive's case (which usually destroys it) and replace the existing drive with the WD one (invalidating the warranty). Finally in order to use it the Humax has to be capable of formatting the new drive.

Weren’t in stock yesterday
Don't listen to the naysayers.. bought this version of WD drive a year ago in a similar deal... still going strong! People whose hard drives fail on them are generally the root cause of the failure.. i.e. removing without ejecting, moving the drive whilst its transferring data, the list goes on..

These drives go through stringent, thorough testing beforehand to make sure they work as new, so anyone who tells you otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about or just screwed up the drive themselves and shirk the blame onto the manufacturer.

2 in this sense is written as two


No a a quantity, and it's tense not sense.

Oh wow, your reply is too perfect. I'll definitely keep a a up with my a a English lessons.

Tense is not what I meant as that's incorrect. I wrote sense, I meant sense. Tense has to do with time, sense is conveying a meaning/expression.

Also any whole numbers between one to nine are written out as words.

Next time don't try to act clever or be condescending when you yourself don't understand English. Fair enough?
It is either perfect or not. It cannot be too perfect. Silly.
